Petrobras corruption scandal: Senior Brazilian politicians to be probed
March 7 , 2015
The Supreme Court in Brazil has given its approval to carry out an investigation against several top politicians for their alleged role in a corruption scandal at the state-run oil giant Petrobras.
According to the allegations, private companies bribed corrupt officials to get lucrative contracts from Petrobras. Most of the politicians under investigation are part of the ruling coalition.
Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff has, however, been given a clean chit.
